The wire (which acts as an aerial) may be buried i.e. under a lawn or driveways, pinned to an existing fence or pushed through the middle of a hedge. It must create a loop which follows a line (usually the boundary) all around the house.

The wire must start and finish at the transmitter. Loops may be created within loops to keep your dogs away from specific areas (e.g. ponds and gardens). The wire comes in 100m lengths and can be easily linked together by heat sealed joints (supplier with the wire).

By making a ‘Sausage Shape’ loop with the wire you can safeguard one, two or three sides of your property (i.e. without having to go all the way round). In this case the 2 wires must be 3′ apart from each other to be fully effective (1 line could be at the bottom of the fence and the other at the top of the fence). By bringing the 2 wires closer together the signal is weakened thus enabling you to have areas of the boundary with a shorter or even no signal.

Petsafe Dog Containment

Gateway protection

A simple loop around a gate way can ensure your dog cannot escape through an open gate. By twisting the wires on the way back to the transmitter, the signal is cancelled so your dog is not affected by the wire at that point.

Room protection

The ROOM PROTECTOR is used in the house to stop your dog from going into specific rooms. It can also be used to protect gateways, if power is available close by and the unit can be housed in a weather proof environment.

Burying The Wire
The wire may be pinned to an existing fence (please let us know if this is a metal fence), buried (i.e under lawns, driveways, paths, etc) or pushed through the middle of hedges (by tying the wire to a large bamboo stick, which acts as a needle). The key is to ensure it will not be cut by mistake. If it is cut the loop will be broken and the transmitter will sound an alarm.If you need further advice on Dog Containment using the PetSafe products please get in touch: 01620 860058 or email:
